Im not new to piercings since I have a 4g PA that i got about a year and a half ago. Since about the same time I have wanted to get both of my nipples done as well. I knew that I had to get them both done at the same time. Everything that I had read in here said that everyone always wants them both or they regret not getting them both at the same time.
I had also read that the nipples are among the most sensitive. Even more so than the PA piercing that I already had and I could expect more pain and a longer healing time.
Got my right nipple pierced today by Josh at Pangea piercing in Ann Arbor, MI. Was so nervous I had got my pa done here over 2 years ago and I have it at a 2 gauge now I figured it was time to get the nipples done and I only wanted to start with the one to see how it went. Having only the experience of my PA I was expecting a lot of bleeding which there wasn't and I am really happy about that. It even hurt less and Josh was able to free hand the piercing and did a wonderful job. It hurt for a few hours after and now its down to a dull ache, I wish I had got both done at the same time.
I have always wanted to get my nipples pierced for as long as I can remember. Something about the sensitivity it allowed captivated me. Today, while in church for Evening Prayer, I thought "this is the day that I am going to do this!" and so after Prayer, I asked God if this is what He wanted to let me know. So after talking about this with the piercer months before about my yearning for this piercing, I decided I would go there. I arrived and knew how much it would be (80 for both including jewelry). The piercer informed me that it was cash only for piercings.
Unlike many guys here, I didn't think very hard about getting my nipples pierced. I got hooked on the idea a couple of weeks ago, had a good old chat with my nipples to see if they were okay with it (they were a little anxious but I bought them over in the end) and that was that.
Like all piercings, I think its going to be super easy and straight forward... until I'm sitting on the chair and I get a glimpse of the needles sitting there menacingly. Time seemed to drag so slowly in anticipation.
After 63 years of no piercings, 9 months ago I got my first piercing a PA - aahhhhhhh - why did I wait so long.
Today I have added another 2 more holes to my body by getting my nipples pierced.
I had been told that the nipples are amongst the most painful of the piercings, and while I have not had too many holes punched in me I can say that they are up there on the pain scale.
I had warned the west coast of the states that they may hear my scream across the pacific when I got them done, it was not that bad.
Today I got my nipples pierced (about 6 hours ago). I was thinking about that for almost two years and today was the day D. I made an appointment in my favourite piercing studio at the guy who did my PA piercing. And he was great again! I was really nervous when I went there but we were talking while he was preparing everything for the piercing and it was really great because it helped me to relax.
So to follow up from last week's post- I was annoyed, wasted 3 hours of driving, 1/2 tank of gas, and $10 worth of tolls to not get my nipples pierced.
Fast forward to today- Friday, May 8, 2015. I researched a local shop that has an APP piercer named Desiree. I get to the nice and clean shop and I'm waiting while the front desk guy discuses a tattoo with another lady. It's now my turn! I meet Desiree and she takes me into the room. We talk a little bit (about her husband's genital piercings), she marks me, and has me sit on the chair.
In February 2014 I pierced both nipples with two rings. I do on a whim. Before this episode I did not like at all my torso. Thanks to them, which I find very beautiful I have regained some confidence in me.
My already high sensitivity before there was increased even more since.
My piercing was done by a lovely lady in Paris. I recommend her.
I go back to see her in May for a Prince Albert. I would tell you.
I'll post a picture of my piercings shortly.
My 14 ga nips were done 9 Jan, so it may still be too early to think about the next larger ga. But the nips ("buds"?) themselves have definitely enlarged some, and now look like they would handle something thicker. However, - Unlike the PA (which was definitely much looser in that time period), the nip rings are still tight in their piercings, about were they were at 10 - 14 days. Question is: Do nips self-stretch? Or does it always require a taper, some discomfort, and a new healing process?
